A non-production function decorator

As most developers know, not every piece of code is meant to be run on a production server. Instead of using a lot of "ifs" here and there I suggest implementing a framework specific "non_production" decorator. A simple django-specific implementation could look like this:

def non_production(func):

    def is_production():
        #django specific 
        from django.conf import settings 
        return getattr(settings, "PRODUCTION", False) 

    def wrapped(*args, **kwargs):
        if is_production():
            raise Exception("%s is not meant to be run on a production server" % \
            return func(*args, **kwargs)
    return wrapped

Now all you have to do is to apply it to your dev/test only functions:

def test_something(a, b):
